Early Treatment: Phase I
Phase I treatment, also known as early treatment, is the first step in orthodontic care for children. It is typically recommended for children between the ages of 7 and 10 when their permanent teeth are still developing.

During this phase, orthodontic issues such as crowding, crossbite, or protruding teeth can be addressed. By starting early, we can guide the growth and development of the jaw and create more space for permanent teeth, setting the stage for a healthy and beautiful smile in the future.

Adolescent Treatment: Phase II
The second phase of orthodontic care is usually started once all the permanent teeth have erupted. Phase II treatment, which is typically around the ages of 11 to 13, helps create a harmonious bite, enhancing the appearance and function of the smile.

This phase focuses on aligning the permanent teeth and improving their position and bite. Braces or other orthodontic appliances may be used during this stage to achieve optimal tooth alignment and bite correction. Our experienced orthodontic team will guide you through this phase to achieve a healthy smile.

Types of Braces

Traditional Metal Braces
Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable today than ever before. They are made of high-grade stainless steel. Metal braces straighten the teeth using metal brackets and archwires. Metal braces give you the option of adding colored elastics for a more unique and colorful smile.

Color Bands
Color bands add a fun and personalized touch to traditional metal braces. By selecting different colored bands, you can express your unique style and personality throughout your orthodontic journey. Whether you want to match your favorite sports team, celebrate holidays, or showcase your creativity, color bands provide a customizable element to your braces.

Ceramic Braces
Ceramic braces are designed to blend seamlessly with your teeth, using tooth-colored or clear brackets that are less noticeable compared to traditional metal braces. This makes ceramic braces a popular choice for individuals seeking a more discreet orthodontic treatment option. Alongside their aesthetic appeal, ceramic braces are highly effective in correcting a wide range of orthodontic issues.

Orthodontic Appliances

Palatal Expander
A palatal expander is a common orthodontic appliance used to widen the upper jaw. It consists of a device attached to the upper molars that gently applies pressure to gradually expand the palate. This helps create more space in the mouth, correct crossbites, and improve overall alignment. Palatal expanders are particularly beneficial during childhood when the jaw is still growing.

Orthognathic Appliances
Orthognathic appliances, also known as functional appliances, are designed to correct jaw discrepancies and improve the relationship between the upper and lower jaws. These appliances help promote proper jaw growth and development, and they can be used in combination with braces to achieve comprehensive orthodontic treatment. Orthognathic appliances are customized to each individual's needs.

Thumb / Finger Appliance
Thumb or finger appliances are devices used to address habits such as thumb-sucking or finger-sucking in children. These appliances are designed to discourage the habit by creating a barrier and redirecting the child's tongue or fingers. By eliminating these habits, thumb/finger appliances can help prevent negative effects on dental and jaw development, promoting healthier oral habits.
